Is your parish using
The Way of Love?
The Way of Love is a natural extension of our work with RenewalWorks. It is a natural way to work towards
personal spiritual growth.

The idea of a “Rule of Life” comes from the Latin word regula and suggests a way to regulate or regularize our lives to stay on an intentional path. A “Rule of Life” is not just a set of rules to live by; rather, it is a gentle framework to guide and support us on our way. o A “Rule of Life” allows us to live with intention and purpose in the present moment. It helps us clarify our most important values, relationships, dreams and work. o A “Rule of Life” is meant to be simple, realistic, flexible and achievable. It is a purposeful tool to help us grow into a more meaningful life with God.

Leading for Discipleship in Episcopal congregations can be challenging. It can feel lonely. With that in mind, we hope you will join us for a gathering of clergy and lay leaders, especially appropriate for those who have participated in the RenewalWorks process. We will come together for deeper learning about discipleship, as we support each other in the effort to build cultures of discipleship in Episcopal Church.
Coming Soon to The Diocese of SE FL
October 19th....Stay Tuned!


The TryTank Experimental Lab offers a much-needed inventive approach to the challenges facing the Episcopal Church. TryTank will work to understand the forces threatening the church in order to identify creative ways to equip future leaders to reinvigorate the church.

“We are re-committing ourselves to Jesus’ call for discipleship which means, quite plainly, church growth, not decline. This takes partnership and innovation.” 

“Any time we have asked ourselves, ‘what if’ as we do and are church, those are opportunities to explore and try, we are going to be doing a lot of that. And we know we’re going to fail. A lot. But that’s how we can discover new possibilities, by trying.”
